In early December, we heard the breaking news that Adani had reached financial close for their dangerous mega coal mine and were ready to start construction.
Five days later, over 100 people – First Nations leaders, high school students, Pacific Climate Warriors, and young people from across the country – held a peaceful sit in at Parliament House to demand our politicians show real climate leadership and stop the Adani coal mine.
What’s more, the following weekend we held March for Our Future rallies in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, where 15,000+ Australians took a stand against Adani. It was a massive end to the year, and I can feel a big shift on the way; politicians and the media are finally talking about the moral case for action on climate change.
With a Federal election looming, our grassroots network is gearing up for more action to shift the politics of fossil fuels and elevate the voices of young people. We’re calling on Labor to make a clear commitment to #StopAdani, while calling out the LNP for failing on climate policy. We’ll be having thousands of conversations with voters, making sure young people are enrolled to vote, and using creative, cheeky tactics to turn up the heat on key MPs.
Right now, there are thousands of people around the country willing to do whatever it takes to stop Adani. Will you chip in to help us win?
